Tim Richmond’s Love Bites is an elegiac and sombre ode to a coastal stretch of the Bristol Channel.
Along this twenty-mile stretch of one of the world's longest coastal mudflats, Richmond encounters people attempting to find meaning and pleasure within small-town England. Beneath everyday photographs of food banks, punks, pleasure arcades, swingers’ clubs, shelters and new-build houses, he finds a waning unease to his subjects: a listless microcosm of post-austerity, post-Brexit Britain. Love Bites allows these tensions to simmer on the surface: food poverty, isolation, commercial decline, housing precarity, homelessness, unfulfilled desire and longing mingle in the overcast, wide skies of the channel and its flat, sprawling coastline.
